From staples to ships to buildings, the Oaks have our civilization made
Logan presents an interesting perspective of human civilization from oak trees including the tree, acorns, and wood. He highlights some particular oaks and specific structures with fine details and deep considerations of how these shaped our civilization. The book is more about these structures than oak trees themselves. We have built on that history but still use oaks in many ways. He concludes his book with a nice chapter on oak ecology and a final comparison with the Eiffel Tower. He does a bit of philosophizing, value projecting, and referencing Christian scriptures/interpretation as well. I found the book well written, informative and interesting. I recommend this book for those interested in history, architecture, boats/ships, and oaks.
